Ugadi Kannada and Telugu New Year's Day. In 2009 Ugadi is on March 27 in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Ugadi (Kannada: ಯುಗಾದಿ, Telugu: ఉగాది from yuga+aadi, yuga is era, aadi means start. the start of an era) is the new year's day for the people of the Deccan region of India. While the people of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh use the term Ugadi for this festival, the people of Maharashtra term the same festival, observed on the same day, Gudi Padwa. Sindhis, people from Sindh, celebrate the same day as their New Year day Cheti Chand.
Celebrate Ugadi "Ugadi Pachhadi" (ఉగాది పచ్చడి) or "Bevu-Bella"( ಬೇವು-ಬೆಲ್ಲ )
The Kannada and Telugu people celebrate the festival with great fanfare; gatherings of the extended family and a sumptuous feast are de rigueur. The day, however, begins with ritual showers (oil bath) followed by prayers, and then the eating of a specific mixture of "Ugadi Pachhadi" (ఉగాది పచ్చడి) or "Bevu-Bella"( ಬೇವು-ಬೆಲ್ಲ )
